  • All you need!

    Although you build your own website, HOSTAFRICA make it seamless. The support response is incredibly fast - even on weekends. I’m paying R99 for support, storage, 25 emails, and cpanel also, I’m using their light speed server for Wordpress. Over and above that, they put you in the right direction to get your website optimal as well as getting your emails to end up in an inbox and not spam. My mobile page rating score is 94 out of 100.
  • Excellent live support

    HOSTAFRICA has excellent support. Their live chat support is always available and they answer questions quickly. The support person even phoned me after one of our chats to make sure I got the answer. Pretty awesome. Their registration process and backend is easy to follow as well.

Frequently asked questions

If you still have unanswered questions, please reach out to us and we’ll be happy to assist.

LiteSpeed servers are event-driven servers, and less hardware is needed to handle the same load as a process-based server. This means the CPU and RAM don’t need to be used as much, freeing them up to make your website faster.

It depends on what you’re looking for. LiteSpeed has incredible server speeds, resource distribution and allocation, and security. Apache is more user friendly, and also has these features but does not outperform LiteSpeed.

Both have event-driven architecture, making them speedier than Apache. LiteSpeed has shown better results on benchmarks tests when up against NGINX, however.

With a LiteSpeed web server, your site will be able to handle more traffic without sacrificing speed or requiring more resources.

Yes, with additional modsec rules, anti-ddos measures, the http/3 protocol (and some other cool features), LiteSpeed is a lot more secure than traditional hosting.

Yes, you have access to all the regular cPanel functionality as well as additional features like the LSCache plugin for all supported content management systems.
